This research aims to analyze \"My Past and Thoughts\", one of the most influential 19th century\'s texts that helped in the construction of the Russian autobiographical tradition. Through an analysis based on a close reading of the text, and the translation of parts of the Russian text into Portuguese, this research will also discuss theoretical issues related to the text, as the autobiographical genre and Herzen\'s contributions to the heroes of the Russian literature in the 19th century. Furthermore, this research will compare \"My Past and Thoughts\" to autobiographical texts written by members of the intelligentsia in the 20th century such as Lydia Ginzburg, Yevguenia Ginzburg, Andrei Amalrick etc, as well as with the personal narratives written by Boris Schnaiderman. It will identify echoes of Herzen\'s text in the contemporary Russian autobiographical tradition and the continuity that exists between the 19th century and the 20th century autobiographical tradition.
